    Well that was good news on my birthday. Someone trying to resonate with what Pope Francis has been trying to accomplish world wide is a friend indeed. I refuse to talk to people about religion at this stage – the programming has been too fierce. Forgiveness doesn’t come easily to some – they constantly search for a scapegoat.

    I’ve been trying to assemble a missing piece of the municipal jigsaw – something perhaps Pope Francis would see as admirable volunteerism. That volunteerism has me in a developers space where solutions to plastics pollution is only but a few automation away. Economist Jeremy Rifkin has been speaking about this to bankers for quite some time. I’ve been in the space three years making friends and developing solutions/fund raisers/platforms.
